GREENSBURG, PA —
Frostburg State junior Steve Brett (Fort Hill/Cumberland, Md.)
connected on a first-half penalty kick, but host Pitt-Greensburg scored the final three goals of the game to post a key 3-1 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference victory Friday afternoon.
Frostburg State (7-6-2, 3-2 AMCC), which saw its five-match winning streak come to an end, opened the scoring in the 9th minute. UPG was whistled for a hand ball in the box, and Brett drove the penalty kick into the net for his fourth goal of the year.
Pitt-Greensburg (14-1, 6-0), which wrapped up the regular-season conference title and home-field advantage for the AMCC Tournament, answered less than three minutes later when freshman Adam Zeleznick converted on a breakaway.
The host Bobcats then moved in front in the 23rd minute when a loose ball riccocheted off the leg of an FSU defender and into the net.
UPG held their 2-1 advantage until the 62nd minute, when senior Bill McIntosh's shot deflected off the right post and bounced in for the final tally.
FSU senior Mike Pregnall (Oakton/Herndon, Va.) made nine saves in the loss, while UPG senior Mitch Paterline stopped eight shots.
Frostburg State returns to action on Wednesday when it hosts McDaniel at 3:00 p.m.
